Applications call for SeyCCAT Blue Grants Fund 2020

The Seychelles Conservation and Climate Adaptation Trust (SeyCCAT) has launched its fourth call for proposals under the Blue Grants Fund (BGF). It is now inviting applications for funds through a competitive “Request for Proposals” process. This year, SeyCCAT finances projects that fall under any of the three strategic objectives:

  • Strategic Objective 1: Support new and existing marine and coastal protected areas and sustainable use zones
  • Strategic Objective 2: Empower the fisheries sector with robust science and know-how to improve governance, sustainability, value, and market options.
  • Strategic Objective 5: Trial and nurture business models to secure the sustainable development of the Seychelles’ blue economy.

SeyCCAT’s goal is to competitively grant at least US$ 700,000 per annum to support the stewardship of Seychelles’ ocean resources, island life, and blue economy. We believe that SeyCCAT’s funds provide a solid foundation for creative collaborations and that together we can secure Seychelles’ Blue Future. SeyCCAT’s current cash flows capitalize on the Blue Grants Fund (BGF) and our Blue Endowment Fund (BEF). The BEF is due to mature in 20 years’ time with an expected ending value of US$6-7M.


These projects are designed and delivered by a range of partners through either:

  • Small-medium grants up to SCR 100,000. These grants will be awarded on the basis of an approved concept note. The maximum duration of grant awards is 12 months for a small-medium grant.
  • Large grants between SCR 100,000 and SCR 1,000,000. These grants will be short-listed on the basis of the concept note (stage 1), and then awarded on the basis of a full proposal (stage 2). The maximum duration of grant awards is 24 months for a large grant.


SeyCCAT Blue Grants Fund aims to be as open and accessible to all Seychellois. The following categories may submit a proposal to SeyCCAT.

  • Any locally-registered NGO
  • Businesses
  • Parastatal organization
  • Government department or agency
  • Citizen of Seychelles.
